Those dreadful, bigoted laws so beloved of Gov. Willard Romney and AG Tom Reilly got a kick today from a Superior Court Judge. Thomas Connolly said that Rhode Island law did not specifically forbid same-sex marriage. Thus, couples from that state can marry here.
Nah nah nah nah.
The plaintiffs were Wendy Becker and Mary Norton of Providence. Reilly said he would not challenge the law but suggested that Rhody officials might.
The couple have been partners for 19 years. They have two children.
